    Need recommendation for slippery deck

    Hi! We have travertine tiles on the patio that were sealed with Miracle 511 sealer. This has turned into quite a dangerous area when enough wet kids drip on it as they need to go into the house to use the bathroom. So much so that I have to lay out towels and rugs every time we have a pool party (it's a big area so UGH!). There are some anti-slip products out there but according to instructions you have to strip off the sealer, but called Miracle and was told theirs can't be stripped cuz it's a penetrant. Anybody else with this problem and found an anti-slip solution? Any recommendations will be appreciated, thanks!

    Maybe ask them if you can add an anti-slip product to their sealer and apply another coat?

    I've used a penetrant sealer on my paver deck, and it soaked into the pavers and left nothing on top. It sounds like yours went on too thick and left a layer on top. So you should be able to strip off the excess.
    There are several products available such as this Paver and Concrete Sealer Stripper | The Sealer Store

    You might need to apply a product like this...
    Non Slip Floor Paint | Non Skid Coating | Non Slip Concrete

    You can test in a small area or on an extra piece of tile.

    You may also be able to lightly sandblast the surface to give it some grip.

    Thanks everyone- will have hubby check these out. Maybe our travertine was too polished to begin with
